A Word Rich Curriculum

‘A limited vocabulary, a word gap, can have a lasting impact on a child’s life, their attainment and exam results, their self-esteem, and even their future employability.’ (Closing the Word Gap, teachit/Oxford University Press) 


At LGS, we understand just how important it is for pupils to be word rich!   Vocabulary takes centre stage in the LGS curriculum offer, with word lists, posters and word games and activities supplementing quality classroom talk, from story time to text analysis.
